temple was destroyed as a result of the mughal invasion and Aurangazeb
built a mosque in place of it. The ancient idol of Vishweshwar is situated
in Jnana-Vapi. The new temple was built at a distance from the original
one by the Queen of Indore Queen Ahilyabai. Other than this Shri Karpati

place and worship Lord Vishweshwar.
